The BEARDSLEY TEAM strongly supports buying local and we encourage everyone to support our local businesses. We have added a “BUY LOCAL” page to our web site and there you will find the contact information for many local businesses as well as links to the local farmers markets and fairs. We encourage you to support these companies as they contribute so much to our local rural economy.
The first one that we would like to introduce is “Phyllis Home Baking” VIEW HERE
Here in her own words is Phyllis:
“Hi my name is Phyllis Desnoyers. I grew up on a farm in Buckingham, Quebec and I began baking at a very young age.
As you may know forty years ago there was no such a thing as electric mixers and all the fancy equipment we have today. We had the good old woodstove with no timers on them; we had to make do with an old fashioned clock. Every year the threshing machine would go from farm to farm to harvest the crops and everyone would help out. I helped out with feeding the workers. That is when I learned to bake and I began to enjoy it, I thought it was fun.
After growing up and finishing school I started working, got married and had a family .When our children grew up and got married and had their own children I was still working. This was when I decided to leave my job and do something different and that is when I started baking and I joined the Metcalfe Farmers Market.
I began with approximately fifteen home-made pies and two dozen butter tarts. Every year I would add one new item. I am now in my twenty-second year at the Market and enjoy it and love my customers and I have met so many lovely people.
I now make an assortment of squares, cookies, scones, muffins, doughnuts, pies, quiches and various loaves of bread, chicken pies and much more. When my Christmas shows are beginning I start making Christmas cakes, Christmas puddings, tourtieres and other goodies. Aĺl of my baking is homemade and made from fresh ingredients, I do not use any boxed or canned ingredients.
You may contact me at any time, as I take orders, my email address is email@example.com and my phone number is 613-821-0815.”
